|Feb-16-04|| ||popski: Bruno Parma, World Junior Chess Champion in 1961. One of the most talented ex. Yugoslav Grand Masters.|
The Parma Variation:
1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 e3 0–0 5 Bd3 d5 6 Nf3 c5 7 0–0 dxc4 8 Bxc4 Nbd7
|Nov-19-04|| ||kostich in time: In one of his books, Golombek makes a disdainful comment about the "modern Yugoslav school", calling them 'drawing masters'. While not fair to Gligoric,( and written BEFORE the emergence of Velimirovic, Ljubjioviec and Planinc), it is fairly accurate when applied to Parma and even more so to Trifunovich. Gligoric once called him "the peaceful Parma". Still, Parma(his Italian sounding name was due to the fact that he was born on the Yugoslav/Italian border),had some nice games to his credit. |
|Apr-04-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some critical positions from Bruno's games not given here: http://www.wtharvey.com/parm.com |
|Apr-04-05|| ||TheAlchemist: Parma was, although he had drawn many games, a very sharp player; he always played 1.e4, he played the sharpest variations against the best players.
Parma vs Fischer, 1961
The only real shame is he quit so soon (at the age of 44).
Some of his favorite games:
Parma vs C B Van den Berg, 1963
Parma vs Antoshin, 1964
Parma vs Balashov, 1971
And he had also beaten Larsen and many other great players.
|Apr-04-05|| ||TheAlchemist: <WTHarvey> The correct link should be
|Apr-04-05|| ||Runemaster: What a drawing percentage! According to the database, Parma drew about 68% of his games. |
|May-17-05|| ||popski: <kostich in time> Heh, than you can call the same Russian players with Alekhine, Tal and Kasparov exception, or what?!|
|Dec-30-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Bruno Parma|
|Dec-30-08|| ||arsen387: this guy's notable games are very interesting|

Simultanka z Brunom Parmo + Pics (2008):
|Dec-30-09|| ||talisman: happy b'day Bruno!|
|Dec-30-10|| ||wordfunph: GM Bruno Parma once said that the book "My Great Predecessors" Part 1 written by Garry Kasparov was the best chess book ever!|
happy 69th birthday GM Parma!
|Dec-30-11|| ||Penguincw: Happy 70th birthday! Also, happy new year!|
|Dec-30-11|| ||Isolani: 350 games played with the white pieces in the database, all 1.e4. This is my kind of guy. |
Is there anyone else in the database who has played only one first move as white during his/her entire career? I am specifically referring to those with more than a 100 white games listed.
As black he did have a broader repertoire though.
|Dec-30-11|| ||Benzol: <Isolani> Robert James Fischer comes to mind.|
|Dec-30-11|| ||King Death: <Benzol> Fischer doesn't make it. He played 1.c4 in some serious games, and that isn't counting the last round game in Palma against Panno with 1.c4 (1-0).|
|Dec-31-11|| ||Phony Benoni: I'm trying to imagine a game between Parma and Wanna Zhan, but that would be cheesy.|
|Dec-31-11|| ||Benzol: <King Death> You're right of course. There is even this collection too|
Game Collection: I have never opened with the QP - on principle
|Dec-30-14|| ||offramp: When Slovenia joined the EU in 2008 his name was automatically changed to Bruno Parma©®™.|
No one can use his name without being excommunicated from the EU.
|Dec-30-14|| ||waustad: <offramp> Growing up in Cuyahoga county, Parma meant a suburb of Cleveland.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||offramp: His career plummeted after he kidnapped Lindbergh's baby.|
|Dec-30-17|| ||Sularus: happy birthday!|
|Dec-30-21|| ||ndg2: Happy 80th birthday, Bruno!|
